low-budget performance passage-maker
Thanks guys. I''ve been lurking here for a few years, and I now have the boat money (not the boat yet), and am close to a viable kitty/work arrangement, but now, of course, other things have come up to keep me on land. Anyway, while I''ll keep saving and keep planning and dreaming, when I do buy I''ll probably plan on staying basically coastal. I''ve just moved to SoCal (I knew you''ve lived here, Jack, and would know a bit about I36''s)...hmmm, there''s an I36 for sale that comes with a slip in Marina del Rey! I could do worse, I figure, than spending a couple years sailing around the Channel Islands...If I really need to cross an ocean again, I might just do it on other people''s boats (as I did my only other time)...
